Volleyball World Cup, Boskovic leads Serbia to the final, the United States is out

Santarelli beats the US Olympic champion and has a chance to defend the world title they won four years ago

Serbia is the first to qualify for the World Cup finals for the second time in a row. The defending champion, now coached by Daniele Santarelli, will defend the title he won four years ago against the winner from Italy and Brazil on Saturday in Apeldoorn.

Serbia 3-1 United States (25-21, 25-20, 17-25, 25-22)

The first set that Tijana Boskovic scored on the spot, which with ten points, made the record straight with the United States unable to keep pace and limiting opponents in defense and in the penalty area. In the second group, the gap is not reduced on the contrary. Kiraly tries to shock by putting Carlini Poulter in direction but the Americans find no balance and continue to struggle with the Serbian game which is expanding but still counting on another 10 points from Boskovic. In Group C, Serbia’s pace drops and the US takes the opportunity to find spaces and the first break for the match with Robinson and the tighter wall unleashed. Santarelli’s team gets nervous and starts making mistakes until he gets under 8. A gap that allows the United States to close easily. In the fourth set, Serbia started well by inserting Lozo in place of Mihajlovic and managed to break a quadruple fracture but the Americans’ reaction was dragged by Robinson. Drews serves but finds a break. Serbia is not giving up on rebuilding, hunting off the bench and starting to grind the match again with Boskovic as Robinson tries to keep the US in the match unsuccessfully. Boskovic closes the race.
